I agree with answer 1 that you may just have a weak CMOS battery.

You also may have a poor connection in a RAM socket.
To check for this, with power off, and the power cord unplugged, remove and re-seat your RAM modules.

The advice on the video cache, I believe refers to the BIOS setting to cache the video ROM.
This setting will be on one of the advanced setting screens in BIOS setup.
This setting should be as specified for your video card.

Watch the monitor when you first boot up the PC, there should be a message to press a key to enter setup.
F1, Del, and F10 are common keys to access setup.
